Mini Notebooks

We call them mini and they are so small that they are just right to keep along with a smartphone (60 x 105 mm) to quickly scribble down what comes into your mind!

Our mini have the same basis as Jollygood Notebooks, 64 pages of the same lovely silky paper (Munken Pure 100g) thick enough so that the ink does not go through. They have no extra cover, the motifs are carved in rubber (by us) and then stamped/printed by hand on every little Mini.

The idea came to us after using our Jollygood Notebooks for a while, we felt that we wanted to complement with something even smaller, even more accessible. Here they are, like little sisters to our Jollygood Notebooks: Mini Notebooks!

We have explored the possibility of using them for flip book animations and just want to do more! A basic technique which suits us fine, you can see our trials on instagram #jollygoodflip. And we’d love to see yours there too!

JOLLYGOOD NOTEBOOKS

A pen on a piece of paper is something very special for us. Sometimes there is no app that can compete with a physical notebook.

Here are nice pages from our wall calendar urbnCal and test prints  from the screenprint workshop given new life as covers for our notebooks. We cut up and select nice parts to match the cover.

For the inlay we have felt our way through several papers to get to the ultimate, an uncoated paper that still isn’t too rough, but thick enough so that the ink doesn’t go through. We chose Munken Pure 100g, an environmentally friendly swedish paper. 64 pages in a practical A6 format (105 × 148 mm or 4.13 × 5.83 in) so it can slip down in your pocket or bag.

The box is made in Stockholm by norrmalmskartongfabrik a great place for paper nerds and screen printed by us. In the jollygoodfellow shop you find them as pack of 12 in a box or pack of 2.

This is notebooks our way, it’s JOLLYGOOD NOTEBOOKS!

 

 

 

Esperanto

Ĉu vi parolas Esperanton? (Do you speak Esperanto?)

It’s really fascinating this ambitious idea to create a new language to foster harmony between people. Esperanto is, after 125 years, still spoken, but I guess English is hard to compete with (which we also use on this web site). If it wasn’t for M. A. Numminen we might not have thought about it  that much. But a language he knows and even sings in must be worth a hand silkscreened poster!

Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. Its name derives from Doktoro Esperanto (“Esperanto” translates as “one who hopes”), the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, the Unua Libro, on July 26, 1887. Zamenhof’s goal was to create an easy-to-learn and politically neutral language that transcends nationality and would foster peace and international understanding between people with different regional and/or national languages.

This poster is part of a series we are working on that explores the graphic expression of languages (and the relationships between people) with the starting point in Sweden, where we live.

ABÇ-plansch (poster)

abcdsc_0122

For us it has been a lot of numbers in recent years, so now it’s time for some characters.

The inspiration for this print comes from our new hometown Malmö (in the southern part of Sweden). A city where about 50% of the population has other native languages than Swedish. The ABÇ-plansch, an extended abc-poster, is our way of celebrating the great variety of expressions and a chance for us to enjoy exiting graphic shapes.

The selection is based on form and we have focused on the Latin alphabet and languages found in Europe. After some research we had an overwhelming amount of characters, to get the abc-feeling we kept 26 at a large size and placed the rest in three lines at the bottom of the print.
